ABOUT

Experienced pro keyboard player available. Looking for a working group doing shows primarily in the Chicagoland area. I enjoy doing all different kinds of shows. Private, wedding, festival, corporate, casinos, club gigs, etc. Experienced in all popular styles (classic or contemporary - rock, dance, R&B, country, oldies, ballads, standards). I can also sing and can play guitar, bass and drums. Great ear for harmony. I also have full P.A. and lighting if needed. The most important thing to me is to be part of something I can be proud of. If it sounds like I might fit your group, please contact me! Photos and video available on request. boyles4615 at msn dot com. Thanks!

Influences

Many. On the keyboard end, Billy Joel, Elton John, Steve Walsh, Jon Lord, Dennis DeYoung, Keith Emerson, Lawrence Gowan, Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston, David Paich, Gregg Rolie, Edgar Winter. Artist influences heavily from the 70's-80's also - Kansas, Doobie Brothers, Toto, Green Day, Eagles, Prince, Skynyrd, Santana, Michael Jackson, Queen, Zeppelin. Contemporary artists I dig - Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Fallout Boy, Pink, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake. I find things to love from most popular artists since the 50's, but those are the names that come to mind.

EQUIPMENT

Tons. I have a 4-car garage. Half for cars, half for gear. 30 different keyboards, lots of lighting/P.A., and other musical toys. Keyboards I use most are Korg M50, Triton, Yamaha Motif. I have two vans.
